Why Do Republicans HATE Democracy?
Check out this video at Dem Bloggers and watch as Rep. James "Tex" Sensenbrenner, the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, abruptly ends a committe hearing about the renewal of the Patriot Act because he's obviously a thin-skinned, fat-fuck fascist (the fireworks begin about 3:30-3:45 in). Champions of democracy, such as Jerrold Nadler of NY (my rep!) and James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, bravely forged ahead to defend, among other things, freedom of speech (with their microphones turned off...oh, the irony):
"We are not besmirching the honor of the United States, we are trying to uphold it." - Jerrold Nadler, D-NYWell, as we know all too well, Republicans don't give a rat's ass what the rest of the world thinks.
"I'm troubled about what kind of lesson this gives" to the rest of the world. - James Zogby
